Koepka Stays On Top At Pga But Opens Door For Shootout


ST. LOUIS – Brooks Koepka was clinging to a two shot lead at the PGA Championship on Sunday but back-to-back bogeys opened the door for a back nine shootout with Tiger Woods and defending champion Justin Thomas among those taking aim at the title.

But the big-hitting American’s wobble had given a tightly packed field hope.
